Five Little Pumpkins Illustrated by Ben Mantle

 Five little pumpkins are sitting on the gate. Night falls and they are soon joined by a witch, some ghosts, and a few little black spiders.

The classic story of the five little pumpkins is brought to life again by artist Ben Mantle. A perfect Halloween read, my daughters are familiar with Five Little Pumpkins  from elementary school.

This board book with padded cover is the perfect size for little hands, and it will get your youngster counting.

My one tiny complaint is that it is designed with black text on a dark background. I had trouble seeing some of the text, as did my daughter when she tried to read it aloud. The page where the lights went out had white text and you could really see the difference it made.
